Hallo,

my Synapse 3 does not find ANY of my games.
I even can not add any games manually!



Is there any way to convince the Software to do it?

Reinstalling all my apps and OS for a bugged software ? No sir..I'll better put al this Razer gear in "dumpster mode" and buy something much,much reliable...

Ok guys this worked for me as @Costin2019 said you have to delete the GameManager folder, just delete all of it, just close all Synapse Apps before doing it(it wont let you delete it if Synapse is running)

reboot your PC and thats it, you will be able to add games again

Hi.
As I said, I've had the Synapse3 installed on 1809, worked a couple of days then stopped detecting games. Today I'd updated to 1903, still the same games detection issue...
Regards,
Costin
PS : reinstalling Synapse3 didn't solve the problem...

it resolved it by itself....

I installed APEX on my system and suddenly nearly all my games appeared in Chroma and Synapse 3.
Dont ask me way?!?

Does it works today ?:wink_: I was happy too for one evening when some games were recognized (less PUBG) and the next day all was the same..No game detected to be linked...Still have this problem...:frown_:

:smile_: I've a ticket to their support team regarding this issue.. If I don't get a soluțion in a reasonable period of time, I'll start returning all the Razer stuff back to merchands... Don't like to waste my time... :smile_::smile_::smile_:
I have the very same problem now.
I already tried re-installing the Synapse software and before that I manually cleared all previoous filed including the registry.
Nothing seems to help.

Hi... All games I have are on Steam... At a certain moment Synapse3 detected all of them besides Pubg then stopped detecting ANY of them.. As I said my Windows 10 is up to date, but Synapse3 still don't detects my games...

Well I'd followed your advice and uninstalled Steam then reinstalled it..Same behavior, but an improvement :confused_:..Now the brilliant Synapse 3 sees the "Microsoft solitaire collection" as the only game on this pc..o_O.. Really, Razer ? I'm getting bored about this useless software...Why Razer sales devices based only on this bugged software ? This issue was reported since december last year...I think I'll shutdown the "Razer chapter" of my life and buy something else more reliable...Dumpster mode activated...Bye

Sometimes just best to re-install the Windows OS.
Which fixed my issue
It only oocured for me yesterday.
Before that it working as it shoud.
I'm suspecting that it has something to do with the latest Window 10 update to build 1903.

Can you try to download windows creation tool from microsoft website and make a update ? This will not delete or erase any data/apps installed just reinstall system files.

Hi, did it .. Running now 1903..Same behavior as with the previous version of win 10..

If reinstall of 1903 dont help you can also try to go back to 1809 and see if on previous build you have the same issue

Ok can you tell me if steam or game reinstall also dont fix it. When the issue start you remember what update or softwere was installed ? any info can help to find the couse of the issue.
I just contacted chat live support with that issue.
They wanted to have some log files from me which IU provided.
Waiting for a response right now.
